30 Days of Truth
I got this from The Paper Mama, who got it from someone else (Courtney Kirkland). 30 Days of Truth. Let's see how it goes. I'm only four days late in starting.
Here are the prompts for each day:
Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.
Day 2: Something you love about yourself.
Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 4: Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 5: Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 7: Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 8: Someone who made your life h***, or treated you like sh**.
Day 9: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12: Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough a** days. (write a letter.)
Day 14: A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16: Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18: Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21: (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22: Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23: Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24: Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25: The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26: Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27: What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28: What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29: Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30: A letter to yourself: tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.
Hmmm . . .
Day 1 - Something you hate about yourself. . .
So something I hate about myself, would probably be my body. And I don't mean that in a vain-wish-I-looked-like-a-model-in-a-magazine kind of way. But I think that my body is wearing out and I am just not ready for it. I want to do things I was too afraid to do when I was 18, but now my stupid body won't let me.
You know when I was 18 years old, I was legally blind and I didn't want to be too far from home because I would be without contact solution or glasses or contacts or whatever. Now that I have had RK surgery and I no longer need those things I am not afraid to be away from home anymore. When I was 20 years old I already had 2 small children and wasn't able to stay up until 4:00 a.m. because of the children. Now that I don't have small children, my stupid body won't let me stay up until 4:00 a.m. without being completely wiped out the next day. I still want to do things, zip-line, snorkeling, ride roller coasters and my stupid body says, "Nope! You are too old, Missy!" All except the snorkeling, that's the whole sea-sickness thing that I have always struggled with my whole life.
On the inside I feel 35, but my body is acting like it's 65 already . . .I just don't think that is fair and I HATE IT!
